Elites in St. Louis held on to their hats this past Saturday for a Bring Your Own Sombrero party at Latitude 26. The week prior to the event, a BYOS photo contest was hosted on Yelp, where users were asked to post a profile picture of themselves wearing a sombrero. Several yelpers competed online for tickets to a Sex and the City 2 premiere party, an authetic Mexican sombrero as well as an inflatable cactus limbo kit!
Upon arriving to the venue, 50 yelpers and their guests were greeted by a hallway full of festive donkeys and Yelp shot glasses and were asked to limbo their way into the party (via the aforesaid cactus limbo kit). Once they made it through the cacti, the Tex-Mex fiesta really began!
Yelpers drank Palomas -- a refreshing combination of Sauza tequila and squirt and served with a sombrero straw, Spanish wine and Schlafly beer. And to eat, they had taquitos, queso, guacamole, and salsa to go with Latitude's homemade chips! And if that wasn't enough, Kakao chocolate stopped by to offer tastings of this signaturure margarita truffles!
Until then, SYOY
